Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and modify every file on a particular server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by specific scripts and even offline applications to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned tasks. The root user can also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on your server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control over your server from almost any location, given that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our plans you will choose throughout the registration process. The very same is valid if you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. All of our servers give you the option to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a standard shared web hosting account and applications which have particular requirements as to what the program environment on the server should be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your web content can be controlled via a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will have a server with limited root access.
